Emanuel Gonçalves

High Competition Swimming athlete. Has the disease Guillain-Barré, but the swimming allows me to gradually overcome my physical limitations, exploring the limits of my body, overcoming psychological barriers that sometimes the human being imposes on itself, leaving only a few sequels that allow me compete in the highest class (S10) of the Adapted Swimming.
